Questions tagged [schemes]

The first purpose of schemes theory is the geometrical study of solutions of algebraic systems of equations, not only over the real/complex numbers, but also over integer numbers (and more generally over any commutative ring with 1). It was finalized by Alexandre Grothendieck, during the 1950s and the 1960s.

Fiber product of singular varieties

Let $f\colon X\to Y$ be a morphism between irreducible $\mathbb{C}$-varieties, such that $f$ is 1-1 and surjective, but $df$ fails to be injective along a subvariety $Z$. (This forces $Y$ to be ...

$G_0(X) \cong G_0(X_{red})$ where X is a noetherian scheme

Let $\textbf {X}$ be a noetherian scheme, $\textbf {M(X)}$ be the categroy of coherent sheaf over the scheme $\textbf {X}$. We denote $\textbf {K$_0$(M(X))}$ to be $\textbf {G$_0$(X)}$. Now I ...

A curve is proper iff the space of global sections is finite-dimensional

Let $k$ be a field, $X\rightarrow \mathrm{Spec}\,k$ be a separated morphism of finite type of relative dimension$\leq 1$ (as defined here). Is it true that $f$ is proper iff $f_* \mathcal{O}_X$ is ...

Equivalence between categories of affine schemes over $X$ and representable functors $\operatorname{Points}(x) \to \operatorname{Sets}$

I am reading Strickland - Formal schemes and formal groups. For a functor $X\colon \operatorname{Rings}\to \operatorname{Sets}$, he defines (2.14) the category of $\operatorname{Points}(X)$ in the ...

Voisin examples in $p$-adic geometry

Let $K$ be an algebraic closure of p-adic rationals. Does there exist a proper smooth rigid-analytic variety over $K$ whose etale homotopy type is not isomorphic to etale homotopy type of a proper ...

Smallest non-vanishing index of Local-Cohomology and Ext functor, as in the definition of depth, for not necessarily affine schemes

Let $(Z,\mathcal O_Z)$ be a closed subscheme of a Noetherian scheme $(X,\mathcal O_X)$. Then there is an ideal sheaf $\mathcal J$ on $X$ such that $i_*(\mathcal O_Z) \cong \mathcal O_X/\mathcal J$ , ...

Sheaf of Kähler Differentials is Invertible in Dense Open Subset

Let $f:S→B$ be an elliptic fibration from an integral surface $S$ to integral curve $B$ . Here I use following definitions: A surface (resp. curve) is a $2$ -dim (resp. $1$-dim) proper k scheme ...

Tangent Space of Picard Scheme

Let $X$ be a scheme and it's Picard scheme $\underline{Pic}(X)$ exist. Denote by $\underline{Pic}^0(X)$ the connected component of the origin of the Picard scheme. My question is what the geometric ...

Locus of trivialization of an extension of a vector bundle

Let $X$ be a normal noetherian affine scheme. Let $j:U\rightarrow X$ be a codimension two open of $X$ and $\mathcal{E}$ a vector bundle on $U$. We assume that $j_*\mathcal{E}$ is a vector bundle. In ...

Why are algebraic schemes called algebraic?

In scheme theory, an algebraic scheme is the data of a scheme + a morphism of finite type to the spectrum of a field. Where does the term "algebraic scheme" come from? It does not seem intuitive to me ...

Topological properties of Noetherian affine schemes that do not hold for general Noetherian spectral spaces

I used to think that the only reason why an affine scheme with a Noetherian space can fail to be Noetherian is nilpotents. It turns out that this is not true. This leads me to the following question: ...

A slightly canonical way to associate a scheme to a Noetherian spectral space

Let $C$ be the category whose objects are Noetherian spectral topological spaces and whose morphisms are homeomorphisms. Let $\mathrm{AffSch}$ be the category of Noetherian affine schemes (morphisms ...

The ring of global sections of a regular scheme

Let $X$ be a Noetherian regular scheme. Is $\mathcal{O}_X(X)$ a regular ring? For affine schemes this is true, see 02IU on the Stacks project.
